Are you Washed by the Blood of Jesus?

   

"Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. 2 Corinthians 7:1 ... dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."

 

I am a retired pastor of the Church of God (Tennessee).
My name is Isaac Livingston. I am from Neyyoor India.

If we have received the blood of Jesus Christ and are saved, God has just bought us with the price of the blood of Jesus Christ. Now, we do not belong to ourselves, but we are owned by God to do his Will. If we are living in the way we wanted to live that is in sin, then God did not buy us, we are not washed by his blood and we are not saved.

The Transcript of this Message

Are you Washed by the Blood of Jesus?

Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus, the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be upon you.

Present day Christianity is the combination of church and the world. If someone preaches that God wants us to be separated from sins and the world, Christians will reject that preacher. They think that God wants them to live in sin, enjoy the world and say Jesus saved them by his blood. This is considered ideal Christianity. It seems funny, but it is true. Christians will not preach openly to commit sin, but sinning is tolerated, accepted in life and not condemned. Further, many preachers say that we all sin every day and if we stop to sin the purpose of the death of Jesus is defeated as if Jesus died to help us to enjoy our sins. So a/c to them, we must be keep sinning. Christians believe that God wants us to sin in moderation, so that we may receive the blood of Jesus. So, Christians are very comfortable with sins and sinning becomes part of Christian witness. That is, if I say that God saved me from sins and I do not sin anymore, it will be considered as heresy. But if I say that I live in sin and God loves me so much, it will be considered as a good testimony behalf of Jesus.

Most churches say that we will be committing sin until we die and the blood of Jesus will be washing our sins as we commit them. Let us see what the Bible says. 1 Cor 7:23* Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men. That is, you are bought by God, you are God's property, so, do what God says, but don't do what men say. Acts 20:28 says Jesus hath purchased the church of God, with his own blood. So, if you belong to his church, God has purchased you. 1 Cor 6:20* ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's. God bought us. So, our body and spirit belong to God and we must glorify God in our body. 1 Cor 3:16* Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? God bought us so that the Spirit of God may dwell in us. So, we are his temple or house. 17* If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. 18 Let no man deceive himself. Please notice this very important fact. Most Christians claim, their sins are cleansed by the blood of Jesus. It is repeatedly preached to them that it is free. The fact is, they sold themselves as slaves to God and he has just bought them with his blood, If their sins are washed buy the blood of Jesus, a/c to the Bible. If your sins are washed by his blood, you are his property, his temple for his Holy Ghost to live. Most probably, your sins are not washed, but you are told that it is washed. But, if your sins are really washed, you belong to God. Now, at this point, if you defile yourself, that is, if you commit sin and made yourself dirty, you will not fit to be his temple, that is for the Holy Ghost to live. So, God will destroy the building, which is you. This is scripture. The tragedy is, no preachers tell you this, but they tell that it is free and say, just call Jesus in your heart and he will come and live in you, as dirty as you are. Be not deceived by preachers. Believe what the word of God says, even though, the truth appears to be very scarey. But, don't get scared. Listen to this verse. I John 1:7 if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. That is, if we confess or reveal our sins to God with repentance, that is to live in the light as he is in the light, God forgives our sins, and he cleanse us from all unrighteousness, that is, he removes our addictions or instincts to commit sins. So, it is possible to live without sin after this, unless we sin on purpose as Judas Iscariot. So, it is not scarey as it appears to be. God forgives us and removes the instinct to sin. It is the supernatural work of God. He does it.

1 Pet 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness... So, the purpose why Jesus hung on the cross is, 1. we must die to sins. 2. We must live to righteousness. It is for this purpose Jesus died on the cross. Nobody preach this. It is very sad. 2 Cor 5:14* love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: We say Christ loves us. It constrains us, or compels us to think that we are all dead since Jesus died for all of us. 15* that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. So, from now on, we must live for Jesus Christ, but not for ourselves. Live for Jesus Christ is to live in holiness. Col 1:21* now hath he reconciled 22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight: That is, he has died to present you holy. Heb 9:14 says How much more shall the blood of Christ purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? Blood of Jesus purges your mind from dead works, and to do the righteous works of the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ.

Many churches, which are comfortable in sins, quote Rom 8:32* He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up, for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? They read this verse as if it belongs to sinning people in churches. They say that Jesus has died for them, saved them and will take them to heaven. But this verse is about those who gave themselves for God as in vss 35&36. 35* Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. They are not sin loving church people, but they are being killed as martyrs for not committing sin. It is so tragic that those who live in sin claim this verse as if it belongs to them. It is pure deception. They deceive themselves.

Acts 17:30 says the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: That is, God winked at, the sins of people for a season of their ignorance. But as they come to the knowledge of sins, he requires repentance. If they repent, God will forgive their sins. By the way, repent is to change our minds from sinning to righteousness, that is to obey God. It is not saying that I am sorry and do it again. But it is to forsake sins altogether. Rom 3:25* God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God. Forbearance is to put up with or to wink at, our sins for a season of ignorance. Then, God requires us to repent. If we repent truly, our sinning will become past and God forgives them. But God will wait until our sinning becomes past, since this forgiveness is for only one time, since Jesus has died for sins only one time a/c to Heb 10:16, 17, 18, 26 & 27.

Let us see a few vss on the board for recap. 1 Cor 6:20, 7:23 & Acts 20:28 these three verses say that ye are bought with a price, you are God's property, so glorify God in your body and don't be servants to men. 1 Cor 3:16,17 say not to deceive yourself by defiling your body with sins. If you do, God will destroy you. It is fearful. But, 1 John 1:7,9 say that if and when the blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth us from all sin, it will also cleanse us from all unrighteousness, which is the sin instinct. So, the addiction of sin will be removed and you will not be forced to sin after this. 2 Cor 5:14, 15 & 1 Peter 2:24 say that Jesus has died on the cross, so that we being dead to sins, live his life unto righteousness. Col 1:22 & Heb 9:14 say, that Jesus has died and shed his blood in order to present us holy, unblameable, unreproveable and to purge our conscience to serve the resurrected Jesus Christ.

But, the present day gospel is a cunning device to encourage sinners to stay in sin. Let me ask you, why did Jesus Christ die? Did he die so that we may enjoy our sins without fearing God? Did Jesus Christ die to guarantee heaven to sinning people? Is God so particular that we should not miss the pleasures of sins in our lives? Rom 5:21* That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord. If sin has reigned or ruled your life, you have eternal death, which is the lake of fire. So also, if you have submitted your life to Jesus Christ, he will be reigning or ruling your life, through righteousness. This righteousness is proof that God is ruling your life. If so, you will inherit eternal life. I hope that you already live in righteousness. If not, will you submit to God and obey Lord Jesus Christ?

Thank you for listening. God bless you.
